An administrator can offer settlements that work in the following ways:
If you and the claims administrator agree on a San Francisco workers comp settlement, you must present it to a compensation judge for review.
You do not have to agree to a settlement offer if you feel it does not cover the severity of your injury and its subsequent costs. DuRard, McKenna & Borg has skilled negotiators who have spent years working with claims adjusters. Our goal is to help every client get an adequate workers’ compensation settlement.
If we cannot reach a satisfactory settlement on your behalf, we present your case to a workers’ compensation judge. We also help you understand and receive other benefits to which the law entitles you.
